Vokey TVD Wedges in Black Oxide Finish Now Available Through WedgeWorks

Posted: March 1, 2011

In our slideshows from the professional tours posted here on Team Titleist, we often include photos of Bob Vokey Spin Milled wedges featuring a "tour-only" Black Oxide finish sitting in the bags of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors.

Good news: Now you have the chance to post photos of your own...

As of today, Vokey TVD Spin Milled wedges are available in a tour-inspired Black Oxide finish through the WedgeWorks Exclusives line on Vokey.com – along with new shaft, grip and customization options.

New items have also been added to the Vokey Store, including a BV Custom Polo shirt and two new hats (pictured at the bottom of this page).

WHAT IS BLACK OXIDE? Popular on the worldwide professional tours in both wedges and putters, Black Oxide is a non-plated, low-glare finish that many players favor due the added contrast it provides against the golf ball at address.

TVD Black Oxide wedges are available in 52º, 54º, 56º, 58º and 60º lofts (in right hand only) and will be built at WedgeWorks, Titleist’s high performance custom shop in Carlsbad, Calif., where Master Craftsman Bob Vokey and his team of artisans design and build wedges for everyone from PGA Tour players to avid wedge enthusiasts.

The present line of WedgeWorks Exclusives wedges features the tour-proven Vokey Tour Van Design (TVD) sole and Condition of Competition (C-C) grooves. The TVD features a crescent shaped sole and moderate camber, which allows the wedge to easily pivot around its center for versatility and shot making. The TVD will continue to be available in its two current finishes – Bright Brushed Chrome and Oil Can Zero (each finish created specifically for WedgeWorks Exclusives), in lofts ranging from 52º to 60º.

NEW SHAFT OPTIONS: The WedgeWorks Exclusives shaft matrix has also expanded to include the new Dynamic Gold Spinner and KBS Hi-Rev wedge shafts, adding to a host of custom shaft options that address the wide variety in player performance and feel preferences. Other shaft options include True Temper’s Dynamic Gold, Tour Issue and Project X, as well as the KBS Tour in steel and graphite.

The customization and personalization options available on WedgeWorks Exclusives are virtually endless, allowing wedge enthusiasts to express themselves and truly make their wedges their own.

Golfers can choose from three different hand-stamp styles (straight, freestyle, snow) in up to eight letters and/or numbers; 20 different paintfill colors; and 40 different toe-engraving combinations – including a new BV Diamonds toe engraving (pictured, right).

Grips come in a wide variety of textures and colors to match individual look and feel preferences. Among the grips available are the New Decade Multi-Compound and full cord Golf Pride Tour Velvet, as well as ribbed and .600 diameter options. BV Custom grips – including two new BV Wings grips from Golf Pride – are available only through WedgeWorks.

A new shaft band option (pictured below) has also been added.

Any word on these becoming available to UK customers?

Robert Sellman

digging the dark oxide look, but worried if it'd stay looking good like that over time and normal use of about 3 or 4 rounds a week.

Everything looks awesome!!!!!!

The plan is to have WedgeWorks available to UK customers this month.  We are working through some last minute shipping, customs, and accounting issues.  We appreciate all the patience our UK customers have shown and hope to have it up and running soon!

Unlike Black Nickel, the Black Oxide is an un-plated finish and will wear to raw over time, especially if used in bunkers.  The Black Ox is our "raw option" through WedgeWorks.  We hope you like it!

Excellent option from those at Vokey. Now could we please get this finish with Scotty Cameron Putters??

Wondering if you order a DG Tour Issue or DG Spinner shaft and want knew of the WedgeWorks shaft bands will the club come with both the manufacturers as well as the wedge works? Or will the manufacturers logo be taken off?
